Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, I dug, dug, dug through my vast hoard of Gravesendiana, but couldn’t find any ephemera explicitly related to Thanksgiving. Not one turkey. So, by way of compensation, here’s an image of a sweet little Victorian girl fleeing a menacing goose that’s just emerged from a cornucopia on back of an 1882 advertising card for Johnston Brothers, grocers (they had branches in the City of Brooklyn and in Gravesend). Enjoy the holiday, and avoid angry waterfowl!
